Welcome to the 11th edition of Field Court Chambers’ quarterly Employment Law Newsletter. The most significant change for practitioners this summer will be the introduction of the new Tribunal rules. To assist you we provide a nutshell guide in this issue.
Our case law update contains some key cases in the areas of discrimination, unfair dismissal, redundancy, contractual and costs as well as legislative updates on the new tribunal rules, the EAT fees, and amended section on what constitutes ‘qualifying disclosure’ in whistleblowing. Chambers’ employment team also welcomes its newest member, Barry McAlinden, who joined in June this year. We hope you enjoy the newsletters and as always we welcome any feedback on items covered and suggestions for employment law topics you would like us to cover in our autumn issue.
